Broken: version: 2.80 (sub 53), branch: blender2.7, commit date: 2019-03-31 21:52, hash: rBb936d7b16c62
Worked: Blender 2.79 and earlier
Short description of error
In Blender 2.79 and prior, importing .ply files which contained vector color information would bring in vertex colors. Importing the same .ply files in Blender 2.8 does not bring in vertex colors with the mesh. See attached image comparing ver2.7 (left) and ver2.8 (right).
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
I've attached a .ply file that contains vertex color info. To reproduce, 'File->Import->Stanford (.ply)', and select test.ply (also attached.) Vertex colors should exist for the attached .ply file (test.ply)
